Whoopi Goldberg Has A Clause In Her Will That Stops Anyone From Trying To Make An Unauthorized Biopic About Her Life

December 7, 2022 / Posted by:

One of the reasons I never watch The View is because, eventually, their constant bickering transforms into The Real Housewives of Metamucil. But sometimes the topics take a sharp turn into random territory, which apparently happened during a segment where co-host Sunny Hostin let Whoopi Goldberg know she will be celebrated while playing patty cake with Jesus in the afterlife. But when the subject of films about her life and career came up, Whoopi immediately shut that down by saying, “NOPE!” because there’s no way anyone can get away with that without speaking to her family first.

Entertainment Weekly reports Whoopi is very much alive and ready to instruct the people looking to capitalize on her passing to let it go. During one segment, the ladies began discussing Andrew Dominik‘s biopic Blonde, about his favorite well dressed whore’“(his uninformed words, mind you), Marilyn Monroe. The film has received pretty bad reviews, with many calling it exploitative. Hmmm…Marilyn’s legacy being exploited in 2022? Yeah, that seems on-brand for this year. But anyway, Sunny decided she wanted to stroke Whoopi’s ego (or EGOT?) by suggesting people will do the same thing with her legacy when she passes. And instead of Whoopi smiling and nodding, she immediately said, “Oh no the hell they won’t!” in a not-so-subtle way.

“It sounds macabre, but I was speaking to Whoopi, and I was saying that she’s such a famous person that when she passes away, people are going to make films,” View cohost Sunny Hostin said, to which the 67-year-old replied: “Actually they’re not. They’re not going to make films, because in my will it says, ‘Unless you speak to my family, try it.’ Try it.”

Perhaps this was Sunny’s attempt at letting Whoopi know she’s been secretly writing her biopic, awaiting the day she can sell the script for millions of dollars. But now Sunny knows if she tries to do that, Whoopi will jump into her body like she’s Oda Mae Brown and toss her down a flight of stairs. That seems like the level of petty Whoopi would extend beyond the grave.

Here’s that moment:
